I really need some help here. The fresh water
system on our sailboat has a PAR pump
rated at 2.9GPM. It has served us well for the last 4 or 5 years when I replaced it while in the Bahamas
. While "dewinterizing" the fresh water
system the accumulator developed a leak so I replaced it with an identical accumulator. Since then the water pressure dropped to very low. The water flows from all faucets without problems. No air no bubbles in the flow. The system is closed. I've turned off the faucets and waited over 20 minutes. The pump
never came on. When I open a faucet the water runs with some pressure but then it dies out, the pump comes on but the pressure never increases. When I turn off the faucet the pump will stop in a few seconds.
How do I fix this problem?
